My brother-in-law Paul brought me a bottle of rum back from Nicaragua, where he was touring with an orchestra, playing his horn. So I made some of it into a frozen strawberry banana daiquiri.
It’s one of the big secrets of having a domestic ice cream freezer – you can make great frozen drinks that are sure to be a smash hit at parties (although there wont be enough for more than a few guests). The only caveat is that there needs to enough non-alcohol content to make it semi-solid.
If you want to try one, here’s a recipe…
Kieran’s Frozen Strawberry Banana Daiquiri
200 ml water
100 gm sugar
300 gm fresh strawberries
Juice of 1 lemon
300 ml rum
What to do:
1. Combine all of the ingredients except the rum and puree using a blender or food processor.
2. Transfer to a sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
3. Cool completely.
4. Stir in rum.
5. Transfer to a domestic ice cream freezer and run it until the daiquiri thickens. It will take much longer than a normal ice cream mix, and it wont freeze as solid.
